Definium’s Luna Communicator with LoRaWAN® is a drop-in solution for monitoring existing infrastructure with industrial communications buses. Full support for CAN and RS485 physical layers is included and support for any protocol can be implemented through a project with us (RS485 Modbus supported already).
Based on Definium’s Internet of Things sensor platform and backed by long-range low-power LoRa® radio, each sensor has a designed battery life of multiple days without sunlight available (solar powered).
RS485 support includes protocol support for Modbus, allowing a configurable set of registers to be periodically reported remotely. Custom software requests (via a project with Definium) can implement support for additional protocols, such as
DNP3, Modbus RTU, or adding alarm-based reporting with existing protocols.
CAN support includes protocol support for tunnelling CAN over LoRa radio, with support for CANopen available via undertaking a project with Definium.
Cellular radio is available including support for LTE Cat M1 (eMTC) and LTE Cat NB1 (NB-IoT). Example code for a suitable HTTP REST endpoint for the device is available and support for custom endpoints is available via a project with Definium.
The optional multi-constellation GNSS ensures you won’t lose track of your device and that all messages are timestamped with GNSS-synchronised time.
Each sensor comes pre-configured with unique LoRaWAN ids and encryption keys, with optional reconfiguration via LoRaWAN downlinks or USB.
Definium Technologies designs and manufactures its devices in-house in Launceston, Tasmania. Definium produces a broad range of gateways and sensors to use in any IoT network.
